Marc Jacobs and Lorenzo Martone may have spent a reported $13 million on a West Village townhouse, but that was just for walls. “It’s a new project that we decided to take as a white box, as they call it, which has no finishings,” Martone told us at the Cinema Society screening of Easy Virtue last night. “Yeah. It doesn’t exist yet. I mean, there’s no walls or anything yet. It’s just a shell,” Jacobs added. The couple is working with designer Thad Hayes on the house, and don't expect it to be finished for another year. Right now, they’re choosing materials and figuring out how to mix their personal styles. “I’m more classic, I think he’s more modern,” says Jacobs. Maybe if you're lucky you'll see them at Home Depot.
